Apple Fires Manager Responsible for Maps as Eddy Cue Turns to Outsiders for Help




As Apple continues to work toward improving the new Maps service the company rolled out in iOS 6, Bloomberg reports that Apple has fired Richard Williamson, the manager directly responsible for the project.
Richard Williamson, who oversaw the mapping team, was fired by Senior Vice President Eddy Cue, said the people, who asked not to be named because the information wasn’t yet public. Cue, who took over last month as part of a management shakeup, is seeking advice from outside mapping-technology experts and prodding digital maps provider TomTom NV to fix landmark and navigation data it shares with Apple.
As part of a management shakeup at Apple announced last month, iOS chief Scott Forstall will be leaving the company next year and his responsibilities have been delegated to other executives. With Eddy Cue now overseeing Maps in addition to his iTunes Store, App Store, iCloud, iBookstore, iAd, and Siri responsibilities, Apple has brought on its "product resuscitator" to help fix the highly criticized service.

Cue is said to be taking a very hands-on approach with Maps, and with his firing of Williamson seems to be looking to build his own team to address the service's many issues.

not surprised..maps played a big role in the fact that the iphone 5 and iOS 6 are basically a joke now

90% of the time somebody brings up either one, it's usually to talk about at least one of their many issues or to make fun of it

just download Waze for gps its free and works perfect for me. kind of community based too because other Waze users can drop landmarks on the map if there are police check points, random accidents etc.

I never wish anyone to get fired, but Apple did a horrible job with the Maps. They were suppose to come 3x harder then Google and failed. If your going to talk sh*t about your opponent you better come hard. I think they should of done the Waze idea, but maybe changed it up tried to do it better.

Never had a problem with the new maps. Use it all the time. Google maps was sh*tty on previous ios's though. Always used the tomtom app before iOS 6.
